or attempted suicide in the past, you are not allowed to enter the military. attention deficit, a common disorder. conduct disorder, juvenile delinquency. they are not more suicidal prior to entering the military. and you might age a teenager who is a fearful kid is not going to be the type of person who will volunteer for the army. those who join the army are more confident, risk-takers, and less anxious than other people. the kinds of things that were there in abundance compared to the population to do with i want pulsesivetyimpulsivity, and ang. >> the rate of anger is five times higher among soldiers than civilians. is that a marker for pre-disposition down the road? >> well, it is. we don't think of anger being associated with suicide. we more typically think along the line of depression. but fact people who are angry at other people, who are aggressi aggressive, do have increased rates of being angry and violent towards themselves. they are higher suicide rates. perpetrators of violent crime has higher suicide rates than other people. >> amy, are families sometimes put in. terrible

'm on medication that i tell them the deficit is falling and falling pretty sharply. i think this move fiscal restraint is grossly underappreciated. i will talk about that in a minute or two. this mood of fiscal restraint will persist as long as one thing continues, that is republican control of the house. i will leave it to dr. cook to give us his analysis of where the house is headed after the 2014 election but i think this theme has legs and will continue for quite some time. now somebody asked me right before this, what about all the gridlock in washington? i would agree that we look dysfunctional in this city but i would also say that we've had some fairly interesting breakthroughs in the last two or three months. we got a budget deal. paul ryan and patty murray. i think paul ryan is growing as a politician. not as reflexively conservative. i think he was willing to look at even some modest revenue increases. we got a farm bill. wasn't a great bill but we did get a farm bill. most importantly you see clear signs from the republican leadership in the house that they did not want a crisis

happen to like, is going anywhere. >> what do you like about it? >> the deficit is going down considerably. >> is that from fiscal reform or from the economy growing? >> i think it is both. the sequester, which i did not happen to think is an intelligent approach, has been effective. have beenwe increasing revenue because of the economic recovery and the composition of the recovery. those two things and some others have resulted in the deficit coming down considerably. it is projected at 3.1% of gdp. it is way down. it was over 9%. we should step back and recognize that is good progress. you could debate who is responsible, but it is good progress. second, some of the initiatives, let's just take infrastructure, are so vitally needed. both sides agree, it is just how to pay for it. it is not going anywhere. senator johnson is right. it is an election year. this budget will just sit there and not be acted on. >> senator, you are saying it does not address the big issues, which you mentioned, entitlement spending. there were no big numbers around cutting social security or any o
the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is
's ever proposed for, not for reducing deficit but more domestic spending. we've had huge spending increases, so those are such nonstarters, i don't see how you get common ground. granted, we're living under another budget agreement for now. but it's clear he's moving farther to the left to try and -- for those reasons and he's not trying to move to the middle. >> congressman, you said that three times, he's moved to the left, it's a nonstarter. does that mean i can't ask you about closing loopholes or -- >> yeah, sure, go ahead. >> are there any ways in which you all could maybe come to something and end up with one or two or three of these things and get some of the things that you want? >> yeah, so we just -- our chairman of the ways and means committee, dave camp, put out a specific discussion draft of tax reform, which does just that. it closes loopholes. instead of using the money for spending which increases the deficit -- he has $1.8 trillion in tax increases, half goes for spending. we're saying take the loophole closures and use it to lower tax rates to grow the economy.

debt and deficit problems. if we are going to close a loophole, the american people should get the benefit of a lower rate instead of just handing them money over to washington so he can spend more. we close a lot of loopholes, we got a lot of the junk out of the code. our plan reveals 228 sections of the tax code. we cut the size of the income tax code by roughly 25%. tax reform needs to be about strengthening the economy, making the codes blur and fairer. today we had the opportunity to make the first step forward. this is the kind of tax code the american people need and deserve. before he opened us up to questions, i want to draw your attention to a list of the major provisions in the press release. when you are talking about the entire tax code, there is a lot to go over. i want to highlight a few items on the list in addition to lowering rates, this includes simpler improved taxation of investment income. we tax long-term capital gains and dividends as normal income but exempt 40% of such income six tax, resulting in a percentage point decrease from the maximum rate indiv
. it was about $11 billion in deficit this year. the new government in kiev said the country is going to need about $35 billion over the next two years just to survive. the i.m.s. is working on a plan along with the european union and united states, saying they're going to try and help but can't do anything until there is a government in place because an official government hahas to those kind of requests and the e.u. and i.m.f. can't negotiate with anything other than official governments. they need a prim minister, a cabinet and that's all underway. it's supposed to be in place by thursday but still a long road ahead for ukraine. >> all right, jennifer glasse in ukraine, thank you very much. in our next hour, we will be taking a closer look at ukraine's former prime minister and her role in shape that go countries future. these are live images coming out of parliament in ukraine and as you can see, the tensions there still exist. also viktor yanukovych still a man on the run. >> the u.s. state department is expelling three venezuelan diplomats, just days after a group of american officials
